Kizziar Family Genealogy Forum
Nancy Kizziar and William Pugh Kizziar
I am seeking information about the family that these siblings belong. They are found in Ellis and Johnson Counties in Texas early 1800’s. Nancy Kizziar married Nimrod Timothy Phillips and had at least 7 children: Fannie, William, Josie, Nimrod, Jimmie, Maggie and Roland. Nancy died . Nimrod remarried in 1875 to a young widow and had a second family. Nimrod remarried in Johnson Co Texas so I am assuming he was living there with his first wife and family. Nimrod was found in the 1850 census for Ellis County, Texas.
Nancy’s brother was William Pugh Kizziar, b. jan 1842 in Johnson Co., TX and resided in Rio Vista, Johnson Co, TX. He married Susan Meyers 29 June 1864 in Johnson Co Texas and had at least 5 children: Joseph, Booker, Fannie, Maggie L., and William S.
In 1894 , William P. Kizziar also remarried after the death of his first wife, to Jo(e) Ann West in Johnson Co ., Texas. She was born in Kentucky in about 1864.
William P. Kizziar served with the 12th Texas Cavalry, Company F. from Johnson County during the Civil War. Listed also on that company’s roster was a Roland Kizziar who died in action. Was he a brother?
I found a Roland L. Kizziar b. 1844 in Johnson Co. Texas on a I.G.I. record on the Morman Site . It listed the parents of Roland as being Noah Kizziar and Louisa Burks. Is Noah and Louisa also the parents of Nancy and William? Any help you can provide me would be appreciated.
